    Odd, the search of his store didn't return anything for me. Thanks!

    Timing of all of this seems wrong. Got people opening threads with no history asking where to buy ko items, grinder stock intercepted at many spots simultaneously, and now this.

    It could just be that the site saw too much traffic. I remember Chimungmung used to have similar issues.

    Uncle Billy's website is working fine for me. Haven't checked it in at least a couple of weeks though, so I guess it's back up again?

    Probably just a coincidence.

    Yeah it's working now. Must have been a temporary glitch.

    ...am I the only one who likes to shout out Uncle Billy's name...?

    Ahem.

    (Thanks for the Taobao link though, @ChromeMagnus. I think I'll be buying a lot more from Uncle Billy in the near future).
